Sought-after auction items in support of Shuswap Trail initiatives – Salmon Arm Observer
With large gatherings on hold, the Shuswap Trail Alliance is looking to make some noise for local trails through a silent auction.
Before the pandemic, the Shuswap Trail Alliance (STA) annual trail party was the hot ticket for February in Salmon Arm. It served as a key fundraiser for STA’s trail development and construction initiatives across the region.
Due to current health restrictions, STA is once again holding its fundraiser online. This is a silent auction, which runs from February 4 to 20, 2022, and will be held on the Trellis website.
STA Executive Director Jen Bellhouse invites Shuswap companies to donate auction items and / or money to the cause, and if they do, their name and logo will be displayed on the website. and Trail Alliance’s recently updated social media platforms.
In addition to the silent auction, the Trail Alliance will be selling limited edition beanies. They will be on the same site as the other auction items as a “Buy Now” item, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
“We recognize it’s been an interesting few years… we fully understand if people aren’t able to donate,” Bellhouse said. “But we’re incredibly grateful if they can.”
Anyone or business wishing to donate an item to auction can contact Sylva McMahan, STA volunteer, by email at [email protected] The deadline for auction items is January 29.
More information on the 2022 fundraiser will be posted on the Shuswap Trail Alliance Facebook page and website as it becomes available.
